anti-americanism, and be sensitive to the church of anti-american as? to the kerry said people? gusto americans seem to have a record of worrying about this. not only do i find the term itself is used as early as 1767. it appears in the papers of the founding generation franklin, jefferson and correspondent a term that was fought over by left and right through the 19th century and pretty much one by conservatives as a term to quash dissent and social and on policies in the united states and became an official concerned beginning during the second world war and especially the cold war when we began to have a scientific approach to analyzing the sewers and coming up with policies to combat it. the problem is that the soppy category. it's a term that reduces cognitive backs the sum total of our knowledge. it doesn't explain foreign behavior. principal diversity of positions abroad are on the same. the problem is they don't think like us. there are rational people i talk about latin americans, there hot-blooded and that's why they're having a protest right now. not for example because we
things that whether i it is targeting her is in vote kerry or cyprus or flying a drone over southern israel last fall. even explicitly against lebanese interest. that makes hezbollah very, very dangers. why are some european countries on inclined to designate hezbollah for a friday of reasons from concern about what might happen to the soldiers, many of them aren't european, italian or french in particular in southern lebanon to assistance to the stability of lebanon which is politically quite unstable to concern about retaliatory attack settle. there are answers to all those questions. is no evidence that hezbollah has ever retaliated with attacks against the entity that is designated it. let's be honest, designation is calling it the name, calling blowing things up is terrorism. took over downtown beirut by forcibly into the death of fellow lebanese. has been accused by the special tribunal with the assassination of other political assassinations. and, of course, now it's having in syria, which is going right across the border into lebanon. we have to be, and i assure you that u.s.
-day equivalent of this would be sector estate john kerry versus virginia senator mark warner. so they're right here on the day of the duel. after randolph had given a speech on the senate floor, calling click a blacklist which is a simply a corrupt gambler. i did not like this. they ended up having a duel together. they arrived here. on the morning of the duel they were handed weapons. they shot at each other. both sides miss. they were headed new weapons. a shot at each other, and missed again. and so they came together, and so rendell said to click, you owe me a new coat, mr. clay, because the bullet had pierced his code. so clay said to randolph, well, i'm glad the dead is not greater. >> right now we are at jones point. were standing on top of the southernmost tip of the district of columbia. this is the boundary marker that was late in 1791, when the federal government was creating that district of columbia. we look at the map of the map of district of columbia, it looks diamond shaped. but if you look at a modern map of d.c., it looks like moths have eaten the southern half of it. that's
and the sons of iraq also known as -- which are essentially a raiders, kerry militants, whatever you want to call them, hired as extras duty guards by the united states military. a lot of these guys were former insurgents who were just not necessarily die hard for the cause but were just looking for a paycheck. and yes, if you're wondering, shouldn't they be on the same side? yes, they should be. but between sunni shia rivalry and personal rivalries, it all got mixed up. so somehow we're on the other side of town but somehow a firefight between the two of them kicked off and we rolled straight in the middle of it. we conducted straight at the cat which effectively ended the firefight. it was much like the band of brothers when they get back behind the tank and press north. that's exactly what we did. with my staff sergeant who was three steps ahead of me and initiate in fact, that's what he got from him was the brothers. [laughter] so i guess it would be art imitating life -- i don't know. i'm not going to waste time with that, but you will lose brain cells that way. so i came back and la
by private counsel. it's one of the else's traditions that anyone that he can't come kerry i can be hurt by the solicitor general personally for united states files a brief in the supreme court. but prepared carefully and as sharp questions at these meetings. as he said in the book, he tried to advance the position of the executive branch, not his own fears. i never saw him favors on position and misunderstand. you conflate knowledge, understanding and intellectual integrity. i plan to tally the stories behind three of these cases. but first i want to mention the last of the solicitor general's tasks, oral argument. bob bork was the best oral advocate is any justice to tell you any argued a lot. twice every session are 14 times the return of the supreme court. his successor as solicitor general attempt to argue between five and 10 cases a year. not bob. he loved to give and take great on his feet. often the main task of an advocate for the united states is to find a new argument to replace the bad one that lost the case in the court of appeals. sometimes the task of an advocate is to pat
of state john kerry has made an unannounced trip to afghanistan. he's meeting today with afghan president hamid karzai. the session came shortly after the u.s. military ceded control of its last detention facility in afghanistan. during secretary or kerry's 24-hour visit, he also plans to talk with civic leaders and others to discuss continued u.s. assistance to the country. egypt has parliamentary elections next month. the ruling party is president mohamed morsi's muslim brotherhood x it's being challenged by more secular groups. next, a group of middle east experts assess the policy in the country and gains by secular groups in parts of egypt. this is an hour and a half. >> personally oversaw the research for this project, and she also twisted my arm into doing this event on the hill so, thank you, dahlia. and also to michelle and summer who really are two of the preeminent egypt watchers and have been really kind to me personally. so i'm going to begin by rolling out the study that was released today as dahlia mentioned. and the top line of that study really is that egypt isn't lost to
thing. it's clear that the administration is -- if you looked at senator kerry's trip, every day on that trip, you saw him in a sense evolving in terms of what we might be doing on syria. i suspect the administration is taking a hard look at and a fresh look at what can be done, and i suspect this trip is going to very much add to that. why don't i pause there. >> very good. thank you. david. >> thank you. everyone. it's good to see everyone. good to be on the panel with my colleagues. i just came back yesterday and i must say i'm -- well, dennis and i have our own cop very generalses. i might be a little less upbeat, having returned from there, and it could be a question of how these things are put forward. but i agree with him definitely on the public piece. i cannot see obama but succeed on the public part of the trip. it really is two trips in one act least to israel. the public part, israel, you'd be hard pressed to find a ford minivan reside full of israel yous who are antiamerican whatever if the differences have been with obama, for the most part, every stop along the vis

but they allowed to consider kerry in many places is much easier than united states. a taxpayer have all occurred in very few places where guns are banned. they seem to seek out places within the dems can't defend themselves. the way to think about this is these people are committing suicides. you read their statement, look at the videotapes. they want to do so in a way that people will know who they are. the chilling to is they say explicitly that i could only kill more people than such a such attacks did, the killer was apparently comparing himself to the region killer and parent of the reason he picked the school with these young kids as he thought he could kill a lot of people without being stopped. so they think they can get by media coverage by going and killing the people in the array. nobody's out here saying we should get rid of the first amendment orban media outlet from going into the news coverage of these killers are being prevented from mentioning their names. an hour after his attack, even though i believe strongly that would stop or take away the benefit, but instead people instan

what we all hope for is any disruption -- that there will be any disruption in kerry's people move into new coverage options are potentially lose that coverage option if their income changes, disrupting care is not only detrimental medically, but has implications for public health as i mentioned. so to set up some thoughts for the panel, said key policy issues and challenges that affect both the lgbt community, what will be the network adequacy of all the new systems in the care delivery systems put in place, the benefits is very, very key. outreach education enrollment. we are at the point where we have to find ways to let people know that coverage options come in for another traces and provide ways to help enroll a new coverage were available. scaling up the workforce is going to be key. we still know there's challenges there. monitoring access in care. as people move into new coverage options are not able to, how will the systems bss? medicaid expansion decision, health insurance exchanges and ultimately the future of right way. i will wrap up now and leave you with these though
